RV, I am with you all the way. I have the same stocks you mentioned, as well as COP (Conoco), and DOW, DUKE, and a few more to diversify my portfolios. I don't have much money, but what I have has been growing very well but reinvesting my dividends. I moved my stocks in my SEP-IRA to my Roth (taxes due), and kept the cash in the SEP-IRA, since I must take RMD's in about a year. Therefore, I will not have to sell the equities to take the RMD's. In addition, since I still work about 10 hours per week, I am able to take a few paychecks per year, thereby, placing 25% of those paychecks back into the SEP. Also, since I have earned income, I can place cash into my Roth.
